Unfortunately, Medicare rebates do not generally apply to couples therapy or cognitive assessment services. There are, however, some instances where some limited rebates may be available for these services (individuals with an existing mental health care plan already engaged in existing eligible services). Please contact our centre for further details about this. 

Most private health insurance policies with ‘extras’ cover will offer varied rebates on psychology fees. Please contact your provider for further information. Please note, you are unable to use both private health insurance and Medicare rebates. The full service fee will be payable by you upfront and you may claim directly with your insurer following your session. 


No one likes cancellation fees, so please contact reception as soon as possible if you need to cancel/reschedule an appointment. We understand that circumstances can change and that you may need to vary your appointments, but as private practitioners we incur practice costs and time for each scheduled appointment, attended or missed. 

As a result, a cancellation fee of the full appointment amount will be charged for appointments that are cancelled/rescheduled within 24 hours of your appointment, or that are missed without notice. Please note that rebates are not available for cancelled appointments and third-party payers usually require clients to be responsible for any cancellation fees. 

Regarding professional development workshops, if you are unable to attend you must provide a minimum of 48 hours notice or full workshop fees will apply. In the event an individual attends any but not all workshop sessions, full workshop fees will apply.

Please note, cognitive assessment deposits are strictly non-refundable.
